We have an unique situation this week !!  The THURSDAY game will be played on AST (Atlantic Standard Time)  Erroneously referred to as  “EDT”.   While Beginnuning SUNDAY; Games will be played on EST.

EIGHT weeks; TEN  OTs .  Did we have that many for the whole season last year.  

Is it because of the rule changes or are we seeing more parity in the league.

BELOW is a link to the NFL rule changes for 2018

BELOW  is a link to to explanation of FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING

http://fromthemiddleblog.com/2018/10/16/nfl-flexible-scheduling-explained/

For those of you who do not know how confidence ranking goes, let me explain.

If we were playing an office pool,(which we ARE NOT).  The object is to score the most points. To obtain the score YOU rank the teams by how confident you are a team will win its game.  EXAMPLE:  Say this week we have 16 games.  The team you are most confident will win you would assign the number 16 and follow down to the team you are least confident in and assign that number 1.   You add up the TOTAL CORRECT PICKS.. That would be your score.  We use the Monday night (Last game played) as a TIE BREAKER.  The tie is broken by the closest to the total (that is the COMBINED score of the two participating teams) final score, without going over.

If we were playing this is how my sheet would look;  My pick will be in bold Capital letters.  you can use circling, underlining, or highlighting.  I will show my correct points in Bold

YOU can adopt the scoring  described above.  Or, the optional method.  A  negative score for missed games.  We will continue to get a positive score for correct predictions.  EXAMPLE:   if you scored          1 pt on the first game and you had 15 pts on the second game and lost you would still have a 1 on regular scoring.

 1.  HOWEVER. with the same scenario new scoring system would result with a –14 score.

I will fill in my picks Thursday.  Until then feel free to:

Just copy and paste for your own Fun Pool Use.  Or to see if you can beat me.

IF YOU SEE I MADE A MIS-COPY OF THE GAMES AND TIMES FEEL  FREE TO EMAIL ME AND TELL ME I GOOFED.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL.
